(^\/ r OUR home is the most important 
_£ purchase you will ever make. 
Probably the largest in dollars and 
cents; certainly the one that will most di- 
rectly influence your comfort, happiness 
and well being for many years to come. 

Surely, in considering this purchase 
your first thought should be to provide the 
greatest possible assurance that your new 
home will be all you expected it to be. 
Liberty Homes and the Liberty Ready-Cut 
System give you that assurance. The Lib- 
erty System takes the gamble and uncer- 
tainty out of building — protects you from 
the heartaches that result from faulty 
planning, excessive costs, and improper or 
inferior materials. 

In every Liberty Home the construction 
is of the same type as that of the attrac- 
tive, costly Architect-Built homes you 
have often seen and admired. They are 
erected in exactly the same manner as any 
other sturdy, substantial home is built, 
each individual piece of material stoutly 
and permanently nailed in place in the 
same way that first-class carpenters are ac- 
customed to build good homes. 

Briefly, the Liberty System of Home 
Building is simply this — a system by 
means of which you can select from a 
large variety of styles and sizes of houses 
the one which ideally meets your idea of 
the kind of a home you would like to own. 
It offers you the protection of a Complete 
Home-Building Service, including not 
only the architectural plans and working 
instructions, but also the lumber, meas- 
ured and cut in the proper lengths to 
conform exactly with the building plans. 
You are also furnished with the necessary 
sizes and quantities of nails, the hardware, 
paint, stains, varnish, doors, windows, 
roofing and other materials specified in 
detail on another page of this catalog. 

The result is a home that is not only 
architecturally correct in every particular 
but is built according to plans which have 
been tried and proved by hundreds of 
others like yourself who wanted a first- 
quality home at a fair and reasonable price. 
Now turn the page and read the com- 
plete story of the Liberty Ready-Cut Sys- 
tem and its many advantages from the 
standpoint of quality, ease of construction 
and, most important of all, LOW COST. 

jN BUILDING a house, the part of 
the work that is the hardest and 
takes up the most time is the 
measuring, sawing and planing the lumber 
— getting it ready to put up. The actual 
work of nailing it in place is easily and 
quickly done. 

Make it a point some day to watch a 
carpenter building a house and see how 
much time he spends with his rule and 
pencil, figuring and measuring the lengths 
and angles of the various pieces of lumber, 
and then count up how many hours each 
day are consumed in sawing all of the 
lumber by hand. You will realize at once 
that a good share of the carpenter's time 
is being wasted in doing things which 
could be done much more quickly and 
cheaply by machinery. 

The Liberty System of Home Building 
eliminates entirely the expense of having 
to pay a carpenter for the hours he spends 
every day in getting the lumber ready to 
nail in place. In our mills the work of 
measuring, sawing and mitering is all done 
by machinery — not only in a fraction of 
the time it takes to do it by hand but also 
with absolute accuracy. 

The result is that you will not have to 
pay a carpenter nearly as much to build a 
Liberty Home because it will not take him 
nearly so long. In fact, in many cases, it 
is not necessary to hire a carpenter at all. 
With the difficult measuring and sawing 

eliminated, you can take advantage of the 
assistance offered by your friends and 
neighbors, and trust them with the work 
of nailing — because the lumber is cut to 
exact size and fits into its proper place 
without any alterations. 

By purchasing the materials for your 
home from us, cut to size and ready to 
nail in place, you save hours and hours of 

For example, it takes a carpenter about 
eight hours to measure and saw the rafters 
for the roof of an average size house. In 
our mill, however, we can saw the rafters 
for two or three dozen houses in the same 
length of time. 

When you consider that the same saving 
applies throughout the various other parts 
of the construction, you will see at once 
why the Liberty System enables you to 
build your home at such an extremely low 

No Tedious 
Measuring and Sawing 
When You Build 
a Liberty Home 

Here Are 
the Reasons Why! 

M 3p! HERE is no magic in our being 
able to furnish you with the ma- 
terials for building your home at 

a price that will save you a substantial sum 
of money. The explanation is very simple! 
In the first place, we manufacture an 
immense number of homes every year — 
and quantity production results in tre- 
mendous savings in the building of homes 
just as it does in the building of automo- 
biles, refrigerators, stoves or any other 
manufactured product. 

Efficient Production Methods 

In the second place, the mammoth Lib- 
erty mills are equipped with the most 
modern electrically operated machinery, 
designed to cut lumber accurately and eco- 
nomically. Such efficient production 
methods enable us to produce the finished 
product at a fraction of the usual cost. 

Thirdly, the business we do is not con- 
fined to one small community, but is 
nation-wide in its scope. Consequently we 
are able to purchase materials in tremen- 
dous quantities at much more advantageous 
prices than if we had to buy our lumber, 
paints, hardware and other materials in 
small lots as a local contractor would have 
to do. 

Then, too, we employ no agents, solici- 
tors or traveling salesmen, whose salaries 
have to be added to the cost of what we 
sell. This, in itself, results in a consider- 
able saving of money to you. 

But the savings above mentioned are not 
all by any means. Read on and see! 

Not a Piece of Lumber Wasted F 

Waste is one of the greatest enemies of 
Life. It robs your energy. It robs your 
bank account. Did you ever notice the 
heaps of wasted materials lying around a 
newly finished house. This wasted mate- 
rial costs the owner good money, just as 
much as the material actually used, yet it 
was thrown away. It makes you feel good 
to know that when you build the Liberty 
way, all this waste has been eliminated and 
you pay only for the material that is 
actually used for construction. 

Not a Penny Thrown Away! 

Good building material is too valuable 
to be wasted. Through scientific planning 
and manufacturing methods, every inch of 
good lumber is used. Where there is not 
waste, there is no overcharge. In building 
a Liberty Home you profit from these ef- 
ficient production principles. 

But this is not all that you save — as you 
will see when you read the following pages. 

BEARS ago, before the Liberty Method 
*1 of home-building was established, the 

m ideal way to build a home was to have 

the work supervised from beginning to end by a 
capable architect who was experienced in de- 
signing and building good homes. An architect 
understands proper construction methods; he 
knows the proper materials to use for each par- 
ticular purpose; he sees to it that your home is 
built exactly in accordance with approved plans 
and specifications. 

No Extra Fees 

CJ 4 ) HEN you build a Liberty Home you 
f/1/receive the benefit of valuable architec- 
tural service without having to pay any 
extra fee. Every Liberty Home is designed by 
an experienced architect, and the materials are 
selected and manufactured exactly in accord- 
ance with his detailed plans and specifications. 

Our architectural service assures you that your 
home will be properly constructed in every par- 
ticular. On the other hand, if you hire a carpen- 
ter to furnish the material and build you a house 
for a certain sum of money, there is no way for 
you to know definitely what the final results will 
be. He may scrimp here and there, perhaps splic- 
ing short pieces of lumber together where full 
length pieces are required. The result usually is 
a house of flimsy construction.

f ■ ~^M 


INHERE is nothing new or experi- 
mental about the construction 
principles followed in the design- 

ing of Liberty Homes. They are the out- 
growth of 44 years of experience in the 
building of homes of a fine, substantial 
type — homes numbered well up into the 
thousands in practically every section of 
the country. 

One of the outstanding superiorities of 
Liberty construction is that every piece of 
lumber is of adequate size and strength to 
meet the particular requirements of the use 
to which it is to be put. 

For example, where experience lias 
shown certain timbers, such as girders, 
joists, studding and rafters, must be of a 
particular weight or dimension in order to 

insure the proper degree of sturdiness and 
rigidity, our architects see to it that the 
specifications, in every case, fully meet 
such requirements. 

Make This Simple Comparison 

Contrast this with houses that you see a 
carpenter erecting without architectural 
supervision. Observe how the carpenter 
has filled in here and there with crooked 
boards and short pieces full of knots. Then 
when the house is finished, squint along 
the walls and see if they are straight. See 
if the rooms are the same dimension at 
one side as at the other by examining the 
floor boards, or by looking to see if the 
wallpaper has the same pattern in the cor- 
ners of the room from top to bottom. 

A Home 

Correctly Planned 
In Every Detail 

IN THE Liberty System 
of home building, noth- 
ing is left to chance. 
Every construction detail is fig- 
ured out by our architects in 
advance, so that when the house 
is shipped to you, every piece of 
lumber is cut the right length and at the 
correct angle to fit properly. Consequently, 
when the work of erection is completed, 
you have a house that stands four square 
■ — with walls straight and plumb, and 
every detail of its construction carried out 
exactly as called for in the plans. 

Even though you were to pay an archi- 
tect several hundred dollars to design your 
home, you could have no home more 
solidly and substantially constructed than 
a Liberty. 

Conforms to Building Codes 

The construction of Liberty Homes is 
carried out in strict accordance with the 
best modern engineering practice and will 
fully meet the requirements in practically 
all localities. 

If, however, there should be any change 
from standard construction that your local 
building code requires, we will be glad, 
when requested, to provide for such 
changes and furnish the materials accord- 
ingly, charging only for the extra mate- 
rial, if any, that may be needed.

The Money You Spend for Rent 
Will Soon Pay for a Home 

HE only way to protect yourself 
against rising rents is to build a 
home of your own. Otherwise you 
are forever at the mercy of landlords and 
are forced to pay whatever they choose to 
demand. How much more pleasant it is to 
have a home of your own, free from con- 
stant worries about being obliged to move, 
should your landlord take a notion to raise 
your rent beyond what you can afford to 

And, best of all, think how nice it is to 
have a home of your own when you get 
along in years and your income drops! 
Then it will be harder than ever to meet 
the monthly rent payments. Decide now to 
protect yourself from this future burden 
by building a home of your own this very 
month. There is nothing that will give you 
greater satisfaction, comfort, and a sense 
of security in years to come! 

Change in Floor Plans 

May Be Made to Suit Your 

Individual Taste 

The plans for each and every Liberty 
Home shown in this catalog have been de- 
veloped by our architects with great care, 
resulting in plans that are most practical 
from the standpoint of convenience in 
arrangement, as well as economy in build- 
ing. We recommend you choose the design 
that suits you best and build it just as 
planned by our architects. Maximum sav- 
ings will be the result. 

If you should find, however, that minor 
changes in the plan or in the specifications 
would be desirable in your particular case, 
we will be glad to accommodate you by 
making such changes which our architects 
consider practical.

HE Liberty method of construc- 
tion is so simple that many pur- 
chasers of Liberty Homes do all 
of the building themselves. If you have the 
time, you will save just that much more 
money, and, in addition, you will have a 
great deal of pleasure. 

But, whether or not you do the build- 
ing yourself, the Liberty method enables 
you to save money by being your own 
contractor. The fact that Liberty con- 
struction plans are so much more complete 
than the usual architects' drawings makes 
it possible to build a Liberty home without 

the least difficulty. 

The figures at the bottom of the page 
will give you an idea as to how long it will 
take to erect the particular Liberty home 
you want, if you hire one carpenter and 
two helpers to do the work. You can, of 
course, shorten this time considerably by 
arranging to help in whatever spare time 
you have, thereby also reducing the ex- 
pense of carpenter labor. 

You will see by the letters from our cus- 
tomers that many of them built their own 
homes with no outside help at all — yet they 
did not have the least bit of trouble.

The CONCORD— Moa -fltttectfa 

HunGaLow - Well Planned - J-ow in @o5t 

To look at the pleasant exterior design and to visit its 
well-arranged interior, no one would guess that the Con- 
cord is priced as low as the figure shown on our price list. 

The Concord is a charming home that offers you the 
choice of two good plans with large, comfortable rooms 
with generous closet space. Plan A is arranged with a 
grade cellar stairway. In Plan B the grade entrance ad- 
dition as shown on page 47 should be used when a cellar 
stairway is desired. 

In the Concord every inch of space is used to good 

advantage, and whichever plan you choose, you will have 
a home that will give you much more satisfaction than 
your money could buy anywhere else. 

And here's another thing in its favor — the roomy attic 
can easily be finished off to make another bedroom. 

Shingles are furnished for the sidewalk with gray 
creosote stain for two full brush coats. These shingles 
are guaranteed to give satisfactory service for 25 years 
as explained on page 41. Shutters and flower boxes fur- 
nished as shown. Height of ceilings S'6".

The neat English exterior of this favorite design, with the 
brown stained side wall shingles, encloses an interior plan that 
will please the tastes of many modern families. Modern home 
makers require more in a home than an attractive exterior, as 
they become more and more economical in the saving of time 
and steps. Convenience is one of the first requisites of a good 
design. In both plans of the Wellington we find the happy 
combination of an attractive exterior and a most convenient 
plan combined with good taste and real economy. 

Plan A is designed for the family requiring only two bed- 
rooms with a large attic space that can easily be made access- 
ible by having an attic stairway leading up out of the kitchen 
over the present cellar stairs. The small additional cost for 
attic stairs, extra door, etc., will be quoted on request. 

In Plan B the large 
attic space has been 
utilized to provide for 
two bedrooms in addi- 
tion to the splendid large 
bedroom on the first

For attractiveness in outward ap- 
pearance and convenience in interior 
arrangement, it would be difficult to 
find a home more appealing than the 
charmingly designed Cornell. 

Departing from the more conven- 
tional square or rectangular type of 
house, its jutting front and outward- 
extending living room give it a dis- 
tinguished appearance that is seldom 
found except in much more expen- 
sive homes. The slatLed Colonial shut- 
ters and the front gable, with its 
circular window set off by a back- 
ground of plain matched siding, 
combine to contribute to the exterior 
a touch of distinction, while the dou- 
ble layer and 12-inch exposure of the 
shingles on the sidewall creates an 
effect that is unusually pleasing. 

When you study the floor plan, you 
will be immediately impressed by the 
size of the living room. Measuring 18 
feet in length and 12 feet in 
provides ample room not only for an 
abundance of chairs and occasional 
tables but also for a grand piano. 
This room, as well as all of the others, 
has a full ceiling height of 8 feet. 

Among the other notable features 
are a large guest closet off the vesti- 
bule, a clothes closet in each of the 
bedrooms, and a linen closet open- 
ing off the hallway.

Seldom will you find a home that can 
compare with the Mayfair from the 
standpoint of an attractive exterior 
combined with a well-planned interior. 
In fact, it is hard to imagine how 
either one could he improved to add a 
higher degree of beauty or a greater 
degree of convenience than has been 
attained in this superbly modern home. 

With double-lap shingles accentuating 
the breadth of its 30 ft. front, and with 
slatted Colonial shutters to lend a touch 
of color and contrast, the Mayfair can- 
not but excite the admiration of all 
who have an eye for beauty. Everyone 
who sees it is immediately filled with 
the desire to own it. 

Glance at the floor plan and observe 
what a large living room the Mayfair 
provides. Then look at the kitchen and 
see how a scries of cabinets (Style C-4) 
can be arranged along the right-hand 
side, with the sink and work-table in 
the center, directly in front of the win- 
dow. And do not overlook the cosy 
diningialcove, just to the left, with a 
recessed space for a china cabinet. 

You will like the convenient location 
of the bathroom — between the two 
bedrooms — and also the provision for a 
closet in each bedroom, with an extra 
guest closet off the vestibule. In fact, 
the more carefully you study the May- 
fair, the more delighted you will be 
with its completeness in every way.

This beautiful Colonial home has the grace and dignity 
combined with interior spaciousness that usually come 
only in homes costing much more to build. It is this com- 
bination of charm, comfort and economy that makes the 
Van Dyke outstanding in popularity decades after its 
model first flourished in the hospitable Colonies. The use 
of the wide-lapped stained shingles for the exterior walls ' 
is most appropriate, however, siding would be in good 
taste and will be furnished in place of the shingles at a 
nominal extra cost. 

From the moment you enter the Van Dyke through 
the attractive Colonial entrance you are immediately 
impressed with its air of roominess. Every detail of its 
interior plan bespeaks comfort and hospitality. Not a fea- 
ture is lacking that would make this a more desirable 
home. And like all Liberty Homes the Van Dyke has 
those fundamentals that insure lifetime satisfaction — yet 
at a cost considerably less than you would pay for a 
home of commonplace design, inferior construction and 
materials. Height of ceilings 8 feet.

This entrancingly beautiful home, with its combina-

stone chimney, will appeal to you strongly if you are 
seeking a design that is distinctive without being overly 
ornate. Shingles or siding may, of course, be used in 
place of stone, if you so desire. 

Among the Cavalier's many outstanding features are 
the large, well-lighted rooms, eight closets, and the "at- 
tached-garage" with its overhanging roof forming a 
protected entrance. In fact, it has every feature that 
you would expect to find in a home of the more preten-

To prospective home builders who have looked high 
and low for an attractive, well planned, six-room home 
at a price within the means of the average family, the 
Worthington should have a strong appeal. It cannot help 
but satisfy those who seek the maximum in living com- 
fort for a small investment. 

The floor plan arrangement is ideal with an unusually 
large comfortable living room, dining room, kitchen and 
three splendid bedrooms. One bedroom is conveniently 
located on the first floor with a private toilet. Closet 
space is ample. Shingles furnished for sidewalls with 
the color of stain you prefer. Height of ceilings S'.

and /Qeninement in tkh ftonuLat &e5iqn 

This modern six-room dwelling, with a porch that 
gives it a broad expanse of front, appeals especially to 
those who want a home of generous proportions at a 
moderate price. 

An exceptionally large living room, with a fireplace at 
one side and French door leading to the porch, is one of 
the many attractive features of the well-planned interior. 
Another is the wide studio window in the dining room. 
Still another is the provision for a lavatory and toilet on 
the first floor, in addition to the bathroom on the sec- 
ond floor. Large closets are provided for each of the 

three bedrooms and in addition there is the convenient 
closet for linens opening off of the downstairs hall and 
the handy guest closet off of the vestibule. 

All in all, the Ashland is a striking example of the 
many "plus values" that are incorporated in Liberty 
Homes. The most painstaking care has been exercised 
in the working out of every detail so as to insure a maxi- 
mum of comfort and convenience to the thousands who, 
when they buy a home, will want one that will give 
them everything they have longed for. Height of ceil- 
ings 8 feet. 



Exterior design makes for desirability and determines 
the true value of a home equally as much as the interior 
arrangement. In the Richmond, a true Cape Cod Colonial 
design, you have a home with an exterior that is perfect 
to the smallest detail, and an interior arrangement that 
provides the maximum in comfort and convenience. There 
is something quite satisfying and restful about the Rich- 
mond with its shingled sidewalls, the formal entrance, 
quaint dormers, shuttered windows. The floor plan is of 
a well established and popular type, having the entrance 
in the center, a large living room on one side opening onto 

the attractive side porch, and on the other side the dining 
room and kitchen. Notice the attractive bay window in 
the dining room with its built-in window seat. Adjoining 
the large kitchen and handy to the living room is the rear 
entry and down-stairs toilet. 

The open stairway leads up out of the vestibule to a 
roomy, well-lighted hall upstairs which connects with the 
three bedrooms and bath. Although shingles are regularly 
furnished for the sidewalls, siding would be in good taste 
and will be furnished if desired. Height of ceilings, both 
floors, 8 feet.

of exterior design as well as interior arrangement. A de- 
lightful balanced effect is given by the sweeping lines of 
the roof which extends down past the chimney on one

it a total frontage of 38 feet. The exterior may either 
be shingled, as shown above, or finished with wide siding.

Planned on traditional lines of early New England 
architecture and accommodated to the requirements of 
present-day living, this prize-winning Cape Cod Colonial 
design is a perfect example of sane, efficient planning. 
Although compact, it has ample floor space with its well- 
proportioned rooms arranged so as to afford the con- 
venience and privacy all too often lacking in small homes. 

Efficient planning should, and in the Nantucket does, 
provide for the matter of low upkeep as well as original 
building cost., Having eight-foot ceilings on both floors, it 

is an easy and economical home to heat. The attached 
garage is a particularly desirable feature from the stand- 
point of appearance as well as convenience. Aside from 
being a perfect, practical plan, it is also serene and restful 
in appearance with the slatted colonial shutters which 
frame the wide front windows adding the final touch of 
good taste to its attractive exterior. It is a design that 
will lend itself well to good landscaping and will prove 
to be a sound and readily salable investment. Height 
of ceilings 8 feet.

We take a great deal of pride in presenting the Tacoma 
as we feel that it will meet a long-felt want in the hearts 
of many. It not only has beauty in every detail of its 
exterior, but an exceptionally well laid out interior plan 
as well, 

One of the features of the Tacoma which appeals to 
many home builders, is to have a home in which you 
have a complete living arrangement on the first floor and 
have it practical at very little extra expense to have addi- 

tional rooms finished off on the 2nd floor at some future 

The regular price of the Tacoma includes the stairway 
to attic, 2x8" 2nd floor joists, windows as shown and attic 
flooring so that the arrangement shown on the suggested 
plan below can be carried out at a minimum cost. The 
price of the materials needed for completing the 2nd floor 
plan as shown will be quoted on request. 

Height of ceilings: first floor 8'6", second floor 8'0". 

The exterior walls of the Tacoma are planned to be covered with 
clear Red Cedar shingles, stained a rich brown. For the flower 
boxes, window shutters, porch columns, etc., we suggest a light 
cream color that will harmonize nicely with the brown shingles. 




One cannot help but admire the beauty, refine- 
ment and restfulness of this lovely design. With its 
graceful entrance treatment, and the soft gray 
shingle sidewalls, blending in perfectly with the 
general exterior design, it is a home that is highly 
desirable in any locality. Here, indeed, is a home 

that invites home ownership. In selecting the 
Cambridge you obtain the perfect combination 
of an unusually attractive exterior and an ideal 
interior plan, all at an astonishing low cost.

The lasting satisfaction one derives from a home de-

is one of the most interesting designs of the modern 
architectural period— beauty— convenience— practicability 
—roominess, all at a low cost. Rarely does one find a de- 
sign with so many outstanding features. 

The exterior walls are finished with wide-lapped 
shingles stained white with the ornamental shutters to 
give the desired contrast. Siding and paint may be sub- 
stituted for the shingles and stain at a small additional 
cost. The large attic space is made available by arrang- 
ing the stairway as shown, conveniently located off the 
dining room. While the first floor joists are 2 x 10" the 
attic "floor joists are 2 x 8" with rough attic flooring 
furnished for a space 14 feet wide. Two additional bed- 
rooms may be finished off on the 2nd floor as suggested 
below. A home such as this which provides such a per- 
feet plan with ample provision for future expansion 
deserves to win the sincere approval of all who see it.

Here is a delightful five-room home that has met with 
enthusiastic acceptance among home builders everywhere. 
It is a design that seems to portray the suburban neigh- 
borhood of happy, contented home owners. 

Among the world's riches there are a few whose value 
cannot be reckoned in terms of dollars and cents. Not 
the least of these is that deep satisfaction which comes 
from home-ownership — the knowledge that in your name 
stands the title to a cottage on a quiet 
street — a yard, a garden of beautiful 
flowers — a refuge from the eternal pur- 
suit of business — a home, within which 
you will find most of the joy and hap- 
piness that this life offers. 

The LaSalle has the typical colonial 
entrance in the center, balanced with 
the attractive grouping of three win- 
dows and flower box on each side. On 
the end is the pleasant porch. Note the 
exceptionally large, well-proportioned 
living room. A fireplace may be con- 
structed without any sacrifice to the 
present convenient arrangement as 
shown below. 

All in all the LaSalle is about as 
perfectly designed a bungalow as any 
home builder could wish for, It gives 
just the right combination of coziness 
with roominess, comfort and handsome 
appearance, and its low price will be 
the most welcome surprise of all. Height

The attractive simplicity of design which charac- 
terizes the Edmund makes it the ideal type of 
home for those whose taste in architecture leans 
toward the simple and dignified rather than the 
ornate. With the shingles stained white, and the 
Colonial slatted shutters in a pleasing shade of 
brown, the effect is highly entrancing. The color 
combination may, of course, be varied, according to 
the taste of the individual purchaser, as we supply 
both paint and stain in any color desired. 

Differing from many of the other Liberty Homes 
in floor plan, this model has a living room lighted 
by three windows, one at the front, and two at the 
sides. Besides being unusually large, the living 
room has another feature that you cannot help but 
appreciate — a convenient closet at the rear for guest 
wraps. Each of the bedrooms also has its own 
individual closet, and there is still another closet 
off the hall which can be used either for clothing 
or for linens, as desired. 

A notable feature, seldom found except in large 
size houses, is the dining alcove, located between 
the living room and the kitchen. Imagine this cosy 
room daintily furnished with a modern dining set, 
and with bright colored curtains on the window'. 
Could you think of anything that would contribute 
more to making every mealtime an occasion to be 
looked forward to? 

Now glance at the convenient kitchen arrange- 
ment! On one side, in a recessed nook, space is 
provided for a range and a refrigerator, while on 
the opposite side you can have a cabinet arrange- 
ment like C-4, shown on page 46. With everything 
arranged to best advantage, here is truly a step- 
saving kitchen! 

If you are planning on a moderately priced home, 
and yet one that has every modem feature, we 
commend this model to your careful consideration. 




It would be difficult to find a five- 
room home possessing a more attrac- 
tive exterior or a more pleasing inte- 
rior arrangement than the ultra-mod- 
ern home here illustrated. 

With the dining room located at 
the very front of the house, and the 
kitchen directly behind it in a pro- 
jecting wing, both having windows 
facing the street, the Fairfield marks 
a distinct departure from other 
styles of homes which have the kitchen 
at the rear. This arrangement results 
in the saving of a great many steps 
from kitchen to front door when an- 
swering the door-bell. 

Extra wide studio windows in the 
dinette and living room make both of 
these rooms exceptionally light and 
cheerful, while windows on two sides 
of each bedroom provide not only an 
abundance of light but also ample 
cross-ventilation to keep them cool in 

In addition to the two sleeping 
rooms on the lower floor, there is 
also space for two bedrooms on the 
second floor, which is reached by a 
stairway leading from the living room. 
Height of ceilings 8 feet. 



This beautiful bungalow has a host of friends, and 
is indeed worthy of their admiration. Its exterior shows 
a distinct character of its own, but the inside arrange- 
ment of rooms in each of the two floor plans, the plac- 
ing of the windows, the closets, all have the solid, sub- 
stantial virtues that make a home practical to live in. 

The Pilgrim is a perfect example of how it is possible 
to have the desirable features of the more expensive 
homes at a low cost. 

Two floor plana are offered, Plan A with two bed- 
rooms and plan B three bedrooms. In plan A the living 
room extends across the entire front and if you desire a 

fireplace, an ideal place for 
it would be in the left wall 
where the single window is 
now located. Should you 
intend to build a fireplace 
we will omit this window 
and furnish two smaller 
casement windows, one for 
each side of the fireplace, 
at a small extra cost. 

You have only to exam- 
ine the floor plans of the 
Pilgrim to see how well 
family's needs have been 
provided for. You have 
only to read the complete 
Liberty specifications to 
know that the materials 
are all of the finest qual- 
ity and that the sound, 
durable construction will 
insure your satisfaction in 
this wonderful home 
throughout the years to

If you have dreamed of some day owning a home of 
five cosy rooms downstairs to meet your family's present 
needs, and with space for two additional sleeping rooms 
upstairs in case you should later require them, the 
Winslow is your dream come true. When you study the 


floor plan below, one of the features that will appeal to 
you is the location of the bedrooms — both on the same 
side of the house, entirely closed off from the living 
room and far enough away from the kitchen so that 
those who wish to sleep may do so undisturbed by 
other members of the family 
who may be using the living 
room or kitchen. It will be 
noted also that the bath is lo- 
cated as far as possible from the 
living room, but is convenient to 
both bedrooms.

Liberty Homes are Famous 

The sturdiness of a house depends upon two things. — (l) the 
quality and kind of the materials used and (2) the method of 
construction followed. One is as essential as the other. 

Liberty Homes are sturdy homes because the 
materials which go into them are the proper kind 
for the particular place used and are of unques- 
tionable quality — selected and graded with un- 
usual care. But this is not all! Every joist, every 
stud, every header, every rafter, is of the right 
size and strength necessary to support the maxi- 
mum load it is expected to carry. Every piece 
of framing material is cut accurately to insure 

snug-fitting joints. The joists and studding are 
doubled around openings and properly braced 
at all crucial points so that there is no sagging 
or swaying. The completed structure stands firm 
and solid — strong and sturdy, from foundation 
to peak of roof. There is no better type of con- 
struction than that used in Liberty Homes, as 
ycu will see when you read the detailed specifi- 
cations which follow.

kiln-dried Arkansas Soft Pine. This satin-like In- 
terior Trim is of close fiber, fine grain, free from pitch 
and resinous oils and is of uniform texture through- 
out. As Arkansas Soft Pine contains no oily or res- 
inous content to later work through and discolor the 
finished effect it is ideal for either a natural varnish, 
slain and varnish or enamel finish. It takes the ap- 
plied color treatment, absorbing them evenly over the 
entire surface and eliminates all hazard of blotchy 
or spotty appearance. AH interior finish is carefully 
machined to a smooth, satin-like finish and carefully 
packed to insure reaching you in perfect condition.

nished in addition to two full coats of water-spar 

Fireplace and Chimneys 

Although on some of the plans the location of 
fireplaces and chimneys is suggested according to our 
best judgment, we believe it best to leave the final 
decision up to the home builder himself. Therefore. 
the materials are not cut for fireplace or chimney 
openings, and you may locate the chimneys where 
you prefer. If you do not want a fireplace you need 
not build it at all. No materials for fireplaces or 
chimneys arc furnished (sec masonry materials). 

Masonry Materials 
Plaster Base 

The prices of such items as brick, sand, gravel, 
cement, wallboard. plaster lath and plaster arc so 
nearly the same in all localities it is to the advantage 
of our customers to secure these materials from their 
local mason supply dealer as needed. By doing so, 
they can start the foundation work in time to have 
it completed when the Liberty Home arrives. It is 
of utmost importance that the foundation be built 
correctly. We, therefore, furnish complete founda- 
tion plans, which are prepared for each individual 
order showing the proper foundation construction. 
There is no charge for this service. Our aim is to 
aid our customers in every possible way to secure a 
first-quality home in the safest, quickest, most prac- 
tical way and at the very lowest expenditure. 

Liberty Owners Tell Us:

His Home Is Greatly Admired 
"My home is a very attractive one and is much admired. 
I shall be very glad to answer any letters of inquiry in 
regard to my experience with the 'Brighton.' and by per- 
.-onal contact to give you a hearty endorsement. Your 
treatment has been very courteous, the excellent quality of 
materials furnished has been acknowledged by everyone, 
the building has gone together smoothly, and everything 
has been entirely satisfacory." 

Edson J. Cheever. New Hampshire 

Strongest Constructed House 

"My 'Wellington B' is now about 75 per cent complete 
and I am more than satisfied with it. The material is the 
finest that has ever gone into a building in this district. 
I have two carpenters working for me and they tell me it 
is the strongest constructed house that they have ever 
built. We have plenty of material for everything, and the 
drawings arc very easy to understand." 

Paul S. Hcrgcnrothcr, Pennsylvania 

The Talk Of The Town 

"Our new home is certainly creating a lot of interest in 
this little town of 500. I think most of the population has 
inspected it. Our carpenter thinks the lumber is excellent 
and doesn't see how you do it for the price you ask." 

Mrs. K. F. Smith, Illinois 

House Unharmed By Hurricane 

"I have only the highest praise for Liberty Homes, and 
especially as to their durability. In the recent hurricane, 
our home certainly stood the test. All around us the trees 
were torn up by the roots, and houses were swept from 
their foundations. Vet our house stood unharmed through 
it all. It certainly speaks well for the durability of Liberty 
Homes." E. S. Haines, Connecticut 

Amazed At Fine Quality 
''We are more than pleased with the quality of the lum- 
ber and the ease of erection of our Liberty Home. Passers- 
by exclaim at the rapidity of construction, and carpenters 
of many years' experience say they have never seen better 
lumber. We have found that the people are especially 
interested in the fine quality of the lumber, the fact that 
every piece is available, the very fine flooring, the smooth- 
as-satin window frames, and the fact that paint and interior 
finish for wood-work and floors is provided." 

Hilary Lamb, Indiana 

Dealers Admit Lumber Is O.K. 

"We are progressing very well with our two houses. 
The material was all received in very good condition and 
am well satisfied with it. Some of the local lumber dealers 
were over to see the material and had to admit it was all 
O.K. You can refer anyone to me to see the houses and 
I will gladly recommend them to anyone."

A Saving Of At Least $2,000 
"We are living in our new home and are 
sure satisfied with it and your prompt serv- 
ice and treatment. I consider the material 
first class, and will say I have saved at least 
S2.000 as compared with what it would have 
cost me if I had bought material at home." 
A. B. Hills, Pennsylvania 


What These 

\ Owners I 

Cost $1,000 To $1,500 Less 

"My wife and I, with the help of two men the first 

two weeks, did the entire job other than the plastering 

and brick masonry. I have been advised that a similar 

house constructed locally cost from SI. 000 to SI. 500 more." 

Lawrence Mai tin, Vermont 

Better Materials, Yet Saved $1,000 

"I received the Liberty ready-cut home and can honestly 
say the material is much better than any I could have 
bought locally. I saved at least $1,000.00. Anyone who 
wants to save money and can drive a nail has no excuse 
for not owning a Liberty." 

Russell Thompson, Indiana 

Price Amazes Carpenters 

"The material you sent for the Columbia 'A' is the 
best that any carpenter has seen around here. It was all 
clearly marked and blueprints complete in every respect 
and your instructions were clear. There have been several 
first class carpenters inspecting my home and all asked 
me how much the lumber cost me. The closest guess was 
S '.300.00. They call me a liar, but I show them the bill 
and then they just shake their heads." 

Steve Drahushak. New York 

Lumber Dealers Wanted $550 More 

"We received our 'Clinton B' Liberty Home in perfect 
condition. We have had a number of inquiries about 
costs, etc. and most of the inquiries are: 'How can such 
good materials be put up at such low cost?' We secured 
estimates from local and nearby dealers for same amount 
of material. They asked $550.00 more for same." 

O. A. Johnson, Connecticut 


Saved $700 On Materials 

"The carpenter who is doing the work 
erecting our 'Clinton' certainly likes work- 
ing with your materials. This is his first 
experience building a Liberty Home and 
he hopes to put up many more of them. 
We can truthfully say that we have already 
saved about S700.00." 

Joseph Patko, New Jersey- 

Others Asked Over Twice As Muih 

"The 'Dover' house that I bought from you in May 
is just completed by me and my son-in-law in our spare 
time and he is moving in on the 29th. We employed a 
carpenter for two weeks on the frame. With all the bath- 
room fixtures, plumbing, lights and everything up to date, 
1 have less than S2,000 in the place. I have been offered 
SI. 000 above the cost for my labor in my spare time 
which I think is pretty good. One of my local dealers said 
he wanted S2.000 for the lumber that you furnished for 
less than SI. 000. We had a great time building it — nothing 
to it! Never worked at the carpenter trade, just a little 
handy." Albert W. Vinton, Massachusetts 

Saved At Least $500 

"I find material of first grade, as good, if not better, 
than I could have bought locally. I also know that anyone 
can put one up without carpenter experience, and that 
I saved at least S500.00 on our home." 

B, O. Shadman. Pennsylvania 

Figures He Saved $1,500 

•'Received my Wellington 'A* in fine condition and it 
certainly is fine lumber. It is as nice lumber as I have 
ever seen going into a house. There have been a few 
lumber salesmen around and have admired the lumber very 
much. We have the home almost under roof. Everything 
has fit fine and the blueprints are easily understood. Also 
we have done all the work ourselves outside of getting a 
man to help put the roof on and a bricklayer to put the 
fireplace and chimney up. We dug our own foundation by 
hand, laid up the foundation, then put up all the house- 
framing. We figure that wc saved about SI. 500. 00 on 
labor and materials and are thankful that we sent for 
your catalog when we did."
